Hello folks! Scott here with the unboxing of my new Love From Lizi April 2019 Card Kit! Lizi is calling this the Bon Voyage Card Kit and we are treated to a smorgasbord of travel related stamps, cut-aparts, stickers, pattern papers and embellishments.
If you’ve been looking for products of a more masculine nature for your card-making, then this is the kit for you! If you’d like to follow along with the video post click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExjozzGQhSw
As is standard, we get five sheets of letter-sized card stock – 8.5″ x 11″ in (from right to left) Peach, Ivory, Soft Grey, Aqua, and Lizi’s super smooth alcohol-friendly White. Our specialty card stock this month is also full 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of brushed satin Gold and Silver. That’s some BIG specialty card stock this month!
We get three sheets of double-sided 12″ x 12″ cut-apart sheets this month. Tons of pics, patterns and sentiments.
The first sheet sports nine 4″ x 4″ cut apart panels featuring seven travel-themed sentiments and a couple of plain travel images and the reverse is this two toned text of travel related dictionary entries.
Our second cut-apart sheet features twelve 3″ x 4″ panels with only a few sentiments and some great patterns and pictures – a mixture of real photos and retro art images – I like these a lot! The back of this sheet has a great pattern of colorful travel tickets. Tickest? Tickets? Show me your tickets please!
On our last cut-apart sheet we get 36 2″ x 2″ panels with lots of sentiments, lots of images and an interesting mix of photos and artwork. The reverse side of this sheet has a nice colorful pattern of polka dots on a darker green background. So many options!!
When cut-apart sheets are in a LFL kit, it usually means we get a sticker sheet too!
A big 12″ x 12″ sticker sheet! These are very thick, sturdy stickers featuring some over-sized banners perfect for scrap-booking, a couple of patterned words, tickets, stamps, balloons and, again, mixing up some photos with some great retro artwork. And look at those 12 sentiment strips on the bottom! A GREAT set of stickers!
And that brings us to our pattern papers – we get 12 double-sided 6″ x 8″ pattern papers!
I love this larger format! This side of the pattern papers feature images and patterns and some large sentiments and even a couple more cut-apart sheets. The stripes on the top left have repeating sentiments on each stripe, we have some hot air balloon patterns, airplane patterns, stamps, maps and some actual photo images as well.
The reverse sides of the pattern papers lean more towards subtle backgrounds not necessarily travel related with stripes and polka dots in matching and contrasting colors along with a few patterns repeated from our cut-apart sheets… Looks like there’s one pattern that is just a little bit pink… (third from left on the bottom) but it’s more of a salmon pink than a girly pink..! LOL!! So many more options with larger pattern papers!
That’s a LOT of card stocks included in this kit! Before we get to the embellishments we do have our stamp set and our peel-offs! Can’t forget those!
Clear Iridescent Mint peel-offs… need I say more..?? LOL! Though tinted a light minty green, these peel-offs let whatever is behind them shine through and highlight the glitter accents. Lovely! And our Bon Voyage Stamp Set features a large antique-looking map stamp with three ‘islands’ surrounded by seas and charted with routes and demarcation lines. There’s a tiny ship between the small islands and we get an assortment of landmark stamps of mountains, mountain ranges, trees, a church, a couple of compass roses and 4 sentiments. I can’t wait to stamp that map!!
Finally, we get to dig into our embellishments bag!
We start with our full size bottle of Crystal Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green and, continuing counter-clockwise, we get seven strands of bakers twine, each a meter long, with four thick twines in Gold/Ivory, Silver/White, Tan/White and a glossy Grey/White, and three thin twines in Brown/White, Orange/White, and Dark Blue/Light Blue/White. Phew! That’s a hefty ball of twine! We get nine wood-veneer die-cuts this month with an arrow, geo-tag, globe, stamp frame, camera, compass, airplane, suitcase and a hot air balloon. Look at the detail on that balloon basket! We also get more metal accents this month with the addition of these two metal keys in a kind of bronze color.
I don’t believe we’ve ever received brads in a LFL kit before, but this month we get 30 brads in six colors: Pale Blue, Peach, Pale Grey, Mint Green, Stone Grey, and Tan – that’s five brads in each color, complimented with 6 mini-clothespins. (I’m getting an awful lot of those clothespins building up in my stash…!) As befits a Bon Voyage Card Kit, we get some tags this month – Two large white tags with brown twine, and a large and small Kraft tags with a thin white twine. As always we get a sample size pack of the Bon Voyage Sequin Mix that features assorted sizes of sequins in Graphite, Copper, Brown, Peach and Ivory.
Last, but by no means least, we get some truly special dies this month! A large (card-sized) car, airplane, cloud, scooter and a sailboat die that all feature interesting curly-cue cut outs in specific portions of the die – can’t wait to see what these look like cut out!
I did get some add-on products this month including 9 new embossing powders…!
I did little sample squares of these new embossing powders for you – lots more sparkle and glitz with these! I’m especially fond of the two Copper colors, the Lemon Zest Party powder, The Oh, Holla Graphic powder and the Atlantis Green which is a combo of green and gold – very ‘underwater’ feeling!! I also got this new storage box from Lizi that not only holds 17 embossing powder pots, but is also sized to hold peel-offs! Oh, my heavens! Even though I did order 20 peel-off sheets during the free shipping sale last month (who could resist??!), I don’t think my stash of peel-offs would come close to filling this box!! I guess I’ll be filling it up with all my groovy new colors of embossing powders!
